The Lenovo Miix 2 for the same price is a better deal IMO.

Much faster CPU, and while it's currently limited to Windows 8.1, that won't be a problem for much longer.
I would go with Miix 2 myself. Yoga 8's only claim to fame is its built-in kickstand. Other than that, there are much better tablets that will get better Android OS support for the same price. Lenovo's history with Android updates has been lackluster.

Even knowing the display isn't incredible and the power is underwhelming, I considered this for the longest time simply because that battery bay in the side of it that forms the stand is a great handle if you're primarily using it in portrait mode. In the end, I went with the new Samsung Tab Pro 8.4 and, while I like it, I can't stand what I paid for it and the handle would be so helpful for using it as an eReader.
One serious positive this has is battery life, thanks to that handhold -- supposedly 18 hours of use and found multiple reviews saying the thing only used like 2-3% per day if not in use.

Lenovo just announced a new lineup of tablets with higher resolutions and more powerful specs. I'm going to wait until April for the Yoga 10 HD+. 4xcore with opt keyboard and high res @$349 before discounts.

I would highly recommend the Dell Venue 7 (Android). It is pretty fast has a decent display and I get over 6 hours of play time. It retails for $150. I played with the Dell 8 win 8.1 at Staples and found the OS a little difficult on the small screen. I think you basically will need a stilus to use the thing. Has anyone with a Dell venue 8 win had any issues with the size of the icons being too small?
